    Ok...so I've made a List of some of the Links I have seen on MASA...all in one Post as I've had a few SMS's,PM's and E-MAIL's as too "where to get the Goodies" to do the DIY Projects...I've noticed all the DIY Links, but not the Links to getting you'r goodies that is actually needed for you'r Project...I am more refering to the current BIG Projects like LED Builds and Controllers and such, and not so much the small.."where can I get 2 of this or 1 of that...etc" and I know there is another Thread of getting stuff...this is more aimed at the DIY guy/girl Importing over the Web as that seems to be the trend currently...I have not done the older DIY Threads as I will admitt that they are now maybe outdated as Websites pop up daily where you can get "direct from Manufacturer"...so I've listed a few of them too....:p

    Ok...think that's enough for 1 Post...:blush:..would love it if you could add the Website of the place you bought you'r Parts from..Importing comes to mind...:p...if possible the Link to the actual parts so that someone wanting to do a DIY Project would know what he/she must buy...for example...LED's...there is so much and it can be so confusing...this way we know he/she will get the right "type" of LED...

    Hope this Thread has some use to the guy and/or girl wishing to do a DIY...I feel a Thread with all the Websites listed of actual parts...and all in one place...would benefit all...:blush: I am not a DIY person...so if I've made a mistake somewhere...feel free to correct me...:blush:
